The World Economic Forum wants to place RFID tags in every article of clothing | 13 June 2022 | During the Davos meeting in May 2022, the World Economic Forum (WEF) announced its intentions to take that tracking a step further…by placing RFID tags within clothing. They want the tags to be ubiquitous – in every article of clothing. Radio-frequency identification, or RFID, tags put out a “pulse” that can be read/scanned by an electronic reader. There’s a company called Swicofil and they manufacture RFID fibers and yarn. These fibers are washable, flexible, and long-lasting. Look how easy that is: woven within the garment itself… Meet the Brivo company, specializing in combining biometrics and RFIDs. They suggest a combination of facial recognition software combined with integrated cameras that “compare people entering the camera’s field of view against a database.”

Firefighters Struggle as Junkyard Tesla Bursts Into Flames Three Weeks After Crash –It took the firefighters “a significant amount of time, water, and thinking outside the box to extinguish,” the SMFD wrote in a Facebook post of the junkyard Tesla fire. | 13 June 2022 | Putting out a Tesla fire once is one thing. Putting out a Tesla fire that kept reigniting three weeks after it was taken to the junkyard is another entirely. As Sacramento’s KCRA reports, the Tesla blaze was a first for the city’s firefighting department, and a confusing first at that — both because water alone wouldn’t put out the battery fire, and because the car had been sitting in a junkyard for three weeks, which would random a conventional gas-powered automobile absolutely inert. In a tweet that included video of the fire, the Sacramento Metro Fire District said that the Tesla was sitting in a junkyard when they were called to the scene, and although the department’s crews “knocked the fire down,” it kept on reigniting.

U.S. House passes a major wildlife conservation spending bill | 14 June 2022 | A bill to conserve endangered species — from the red-cockaded woodpecker to the snuffbox mussel — was passed by the U.S. House in a 231-to-190 vote on Tuesday. The Recovering America’s Wildlife Act would create an annual fund of more than 1.3 billion, given to states, territories, and tribal nations for wildlife conservation on the ground. While threatened species have been defined and protected under the Endangered Species Act since 1973, that law does not provide robust funding to proactively maintain their numbers.

The group said it hit the target Wednesday but is working toward collecting 650,000 signatures as some will likely be deemed invalid by the Los Angeles County officials. “Simply clearing the required threshold is not enough — we must build the necessary cushion for signatures that are inevitably invalidated,” a campaign statement said.

Biden Admin to Punish Border Patrol Agents in Horseback Incident Involving Haitian Illegals Two Months After They Were Cleared of Charges | 14 June 2022 | The Biden administration is going to punish the Border Patrol agents involved in the “whipping” incident with the Haitian illegals entering the U.S. two months after these same agents were cleared of wrongdoing. Back in April, it was reported that the border agents who were accused of “whipping” Haitian migrants last year have been completely cleared of all charges. At the time of the incident back in September 2021, Democrats and leftists in the media spread the fake claims in order to distract from the unfolding crisis on the border. The Washington Examiner reported: The Border Patrol is preparing to discipline agents whom Biden administration officials accused of “whipping” Haitian migrants while on horseback in Del Rio, Texas, last September, the Washington Examiner has learned. U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the federal agency that investigated the incident, will accuse the horse patrol agents of “administrative violations,” according to a senior agency official who confirmed an earlier report from Fox News.

Ohio Eases Requirements for Teachers to Carry Guns in Schools | 13 June 2022 | Ohio GOP Gov. Mike DeWine on Monday signed a bill that significantly lowers the amount of training that teachers and other school staffers must undergo in order to carry a firearm on school grounds. “In life we make choices, and we don’t always know what the outcome is going to be,” the governor said at a press conference on Monday, according to The Columbus Dispatch. “What this Legislature has done, I’ve done by signing it, is giving schools an option based on their particular circumstances to make the best decision they can make with the best information they have…” DeWine said in a statement earlier this month that the legislation will enable “local school districts, if they so choose, to designate armed staff for school security and safety.”

Bennie Thompson indicated it’s up to the Justice Department to decide on its own whether to pursue criminal prosecutions. | 13 June 2022 | The chair of the House committee investigating the Capitol riot said Monday night that the panel will not make any criminal referrals, even though its leaders have previously hinted at the possibility of doing so. “Our job is to look at the facts and circumstances around January 6 — what caused it — and make recommendations after that,” Chair Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., told reporters as he left the House chamber after the second day of public hearings by the panel. But the committee’s vice chair Liz Cheney, “R”-Deep State-Wyo., suggested later on Monday that a decision was not yet final.
